The General Social Survey has been publishing a vast array of data since the 1970s. I decided I wanted to create a visualization that shows how often Americans go to religious services. I used data from the GSS question, “How often do you attend religious services?” to create this visualization. I decided to make it a little more interesting by adding a filter that lets you see the results by how confident the respondent was that God exists. I used the GSS Explorer website to download the 2016 data they have on the subject. Once I had the data, I used Tableau to create the visualization.
